This DVD course is easy to follow, and provides instruction in narration speed, regular speed, and reverse angle. Techniques are shown with and without a partner to make the information easily retainable. The is a special course where the requirements for rank are modified to make home study easier.
Students proceed at their own pace, and send in videos of themselves performing the requirements for each belt test. You may also post your video test to You Tube and email us the link that your test can be reviewed by our Black Belt staff.
We stay in very close contact with our home study students via telephone and email to critique your tests and monitor your progress. Students may also arrange for private instruction.
Students who pass their Black Belt test are also eligible to teach under the Kobukan Federation.
